[libvirt-users] CentOS 6 and 1.3.3



libvirt 1.3.3 seems to have introduced some kind of issue on CentOS 6 (no systemd). After upgrading, libvirt would take an incredibly long time to get to a state where it would actually respond to a simple 'virsh list' command.

Looking at verbose output showed this repeating at exactly 30s intervals

Looking at the dbus src, there's a 30s timeout defined here:

src/util/virdbus.c:# define VIR_DBUS_METHOD_CALL_TIMEOUT_MILLIS 30 * 1000

So, for some reason libvirt is trying to call a dbus method before every KVM instance start. This leads to absurdly long startup times. This behavior was not present in 1.3.1.

My workaround was to just recompile with '--with-firewalld=no --with-dbus=no', which seems to have worked. There's not really anything useful for libvirt to be talking to via dbus (in our environment), so no big loss there.
